Saving Lives After a Nuclear Detonation

Brooke Buddemeier’s PrepTalk, “Saving Lives After a Nuclear Detonation,” emphasizes the importance of sheltering after a nuclear detonation and provides emergency managers with tools to help citizens, responders, and city officials get ready.

“The most important life-saving decisions are those made in the first few minutes and hours of an event, and those decisions are not going to be coming from Washington, D.C.,” Buddemeier said. “State and local communities need to be prepared to make them.”
